One of this year's most anticipated restaurants openings, Trinity, swings open in the French Quarter next week. Gambit confirms that the eatery is slated to open May 11, bringing boozy sno-balls and broiled oysters to Decatur Street. Located inside the former Maximo's space, developer Hugh Uhalt gave the Trinity restaurant a million dollar makeover.
Chef Michael Isolani (previously Bouligny Tavern) came on board in February as opening chef, replacing Scott Maki. The new chef alongside pastry chef Sydney Rainwater has developed a contemporary Creole menu that features items like crawfish and Fontina beignets, duck fat hushpuppies, ricotta gnudi with muscadine wine, and "Fat Elvis" banana splits. Meanwhile, Bartender Adam Orzechowski's cocktail program will focus on high alcohol "Hard Tails" and low ABV "Soft Tails." Stay tuned for more updates.
